Taking Your Stamps and Die Cuts Personally

The Papertrey Ink, Make It Monday #59, with Erin Lincoln this week shows you how to take your own computer generated text, print it, and then stamp and die cut over that sentiment to make something a little more personal. The creative possibilities, using this technique, are endless...
Thinking back, before my son was born, (knowing he was going to be a boy) my daughter, and then the rest of the family started calling him "baby Bobby". Wouldn't it have been nice to receive a card that had that special name on it? It would be really nice to look back on today since that "baby Bobby" is now a college student measuring 6 foot 2 inches tall!

Erin showed us how to take any stamp like this one from the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Button Boutique...

And then stamp it over computer generated text that you print yourself. I even decided to use the word art in Microsoft Word to spruce the text up a bit.

Erin's tutorial shows you how to combine text, stamp and die cuts to create something especially made for that special someone or yourself...

Like I said, the possiblilities are endless.
